An annual menstrual product drive for women and girls who are homeless, in transition, and without access.
During our second year of the #PeriodT drive, we were able to collect a little over 5,600 menstrual product items!! Because of you and your lightwork, we are able to partner with 3 phenomenal Black-women owned businesses and organizations to make an impact again in 2022! Special thank you to our partners:

What is PeriodT?
PeriodT is a menstrual product drive that happens every year during the month of March and early April. Since its inception in 2021, 20,000 menstrual hygiene products have been collected and donated. Basic, common menstrual products such as tampons, pads, menstrual cups, and wipes are collected and then donated to the Black-owned non-profit, Mamatoto Village in Washington D.C. and a local menstrual product hotline created by The Flower Collective VA. We were happy to partner with Queen Ni's Kitty Palace in a buy 1 box of pads, give 1 box of pads. as well during PeriodT'22. We hope to partner with these amazing businesses and organizations again. If you are interested in partnership, we'd love to connect with you!
Why does this matter?
Did you know that 567,715 people experience homelessness in the United States? Of that, 53.5% of the homeless population are women. This means over a quarter of a million women do not have steady access or access at all to any menstrual products. Many women are left using socks, paper towel, toilet paper, or paper bags as their sanitary napkin. Unbelievable, right? Menstruation is a natural female process all women endure and every female should have access to the proper resources needed to safely and comfortably carry out a natural process.
Why does EyeRmbr do this?
We exist to enrich the mind, body, and soul of women in order for them to maximize their purpose and impact. This mission cannot be achieved if basic, female needs are unmet or to a degree of comfortability. We must first serve and address immediate needs before we can begin to nourish the mind and soul.
